Athletic training manual shows in specific detail how to increase your running speed. Program uses an isometric training strategy along with resistance bands to strengthen the fast-twitch muscle fibers in specific leg/thigh muscles involved in sprinting. These include the thigh flexors, hamstrings, quadriceps, adductor, abductor, and thigh extensor muscles. Each muscle group requires only 3 minutes of training every other day for two weeks before results can be seen. To date, this is the fastest way to run faster. Program can be used for athletes on any level from grade school to professional. Unlike agressive weight training, plyometric training, parachutes and weight sleds, that leave you feeling tired and sluggish afterwards, isometric exercises leave you faster and more responsive immediately. Almost no setup is required. Helps improve all phases of sprinting from the first step, to lateral mobility, to high end sprinting. Currently being used my NBA, MLB, NFL athletes along with high schoolers and grade school children.

We personally put the program to test and were amazed at how simple and productive these exercise actually were. As the author puts it, speed training should be, as the name implies, fast. This program required only 3 minute sessions. We didn't even break a sweat, but the fast-twitch conditioning was immediate. In an age where people want something new and different, sometimes keeping it simple is the smartest thing. Unless you have tried isometric training using the resistance band for speed training, you have a huge resevoir of untapped muscular energy just waiting to be released. Information this helpful had to be printed.From the Author:
A few years back, I was casually experimenting with a training technique I had learned when I was about twelve years old known as isometric training. I wanted to run faster to help with my flag football team. Being a chiropractor, I learned the specific muscle groups in the leg responsible for sprinting. I can remember in the past that every time I thought I was being trained for speed by my coaches I actually got slower. I decided to experiment with isometric training using the resistance band on my leg muscles and in just two days I had become faster than when I was in high school. I shared this information with my brother and he got the same results. I continued with everyone I knew and they all got faster. I soon realized that speed training was being taught all wrong with weight-sled, parachutes, plyometric etc. that I am determined to prove to any athlete that I can make them faster in just 14 days by using my strategies. The training concept is so fundamentally solid that it makes me shake my head when I see athletes on ESPN going through "speed" drills when in fact they are actually going through "strength and endurance" drills. Many trainers do not like to be told they are wrong and continue to condition their athletes for strength and endurance functions while at the same time telling them its for speed. I simply tell them to try my program with an open mind and let the results speak for themselves. Some trainers are now coaching the fastest teams in their division simply because they didn't let their pride get in the way.
